Chapter 37

Once Chris realized what was happening he quickly pushed Jill off of him and glared at her.

"What is your problem?!" Chris yelled. Jill took a step back with a scared expression on her face.

"Chris I just wanted…" Jill began quietly.

"You just wanted to what? Ruin my life? Well congratulations you did! Just stay out of my life, don't look at me, don't talk to me, I wish you weren't even in the same life as me so you could ruin someone else's when they were TRYING TO BE NICE to you!" Chris yelled so loud that he couldn't hear Jill's loud sobs or her mother yelling at him to stop. Chris looked as Jill's mom and friends tried to comfort her and honestly didn't feel a pang of guilt. She deserved what she got.

"What is your problem?!" Her mother asked him with complete anger in her voice.

"Why don't you ask your daughter?"

"Jill what happened?" She asked her concerned. "I wanted him back…" Jill told her through sniffles.

"I don't get why you had to yell at her to tell her you weren't interested." Her mom told him once again angry.

"One, I already told her no. Two, I have a girlfriend who I love more than I will ever love anyone else and she know that. Three, she already tried to break us up by threatening my girlfriend by throwing her tray on her and embarrassing her in front of everybody at lunch. And four, her way of 'wanting me back' was to kiss me against my will and have her friends ready to record it and take pictures so she can probably show it to my girlfriend and make her think I'm cheating on her! So I had every right to tell her the truth and she deserved every word she got!" Chris told her, crossing his arms and waiting for a reaction.

"She wouldn't do that!"

"Give me your phone so I can show her the video." Chris told one of the guests. He handed him the phone and Chris pulled up the video and showed it to her mom. He watched as her expression changed and she looked to Jill angrily.

"Why would you do this Jill? You know what? Party's over, everybody out!" Her mom yelled.

Chris grabbed his stuff and left with a smile, he was sure Jill would learn her lesson this time. Chris got in his car and made his way home.


Since Chris didn't answer his phone, Sheva decided to call Mrs. Redfield and let her know to tell him once she got back. Sheva clicked on her name and waited for her to pick up.

"Hey sweetheart, how are you?"

"Oh I'm good and you?"

"I'm great, thank you. So what did you need?" She asked politely.

"I just would like you to tell Chris that he left his watch with me when he gets back from helping his grandma." Sheva told her as she played with his watch in her hand.

"Sweetheart, he's not at his grandmas… He went to Jill's party."She told her slowly.

Sheva froze and dropped the watch. A lump formed in her throat and her eyes began to water.

"He lied to me… he said he was helping his grandma around the house…" Sheva told her, her voice cracking as she spoke.

"Sheva I am so sorry… I don't know why he lied but I will be sure to talk to him about it. He must have a good reason; I know he loves you so much." Mrs. Redfield told her sincerely.

"Ok…" Was Sheva's quiet response as a few tears fell from her eyes.

"I will talk to you later, alright?"

"Yes ma'am." Sheva told her more quietly.

"See ya."

"Bye…" Sheva said then disconnected the call. She wiped the few tears that made their way down her face and looked at her phone. Just then she got a message with a video attached. She opened it a played the video. At first it started black and the hand that was in front of the camera moved. There she saw Jill and Chris kissing and Chris doing nothing to stop it.

"NOO!" Sheva screamed and threw her phone at the wall. She curled up into a ball and let all of her tears fall as she sobbed out loud.

Clyde and Nadia bust through her door and ran to her.

"Sheva what's wrong? Why are you crying?" Nadia asked as she sat next to her and pulled her close. Sheva didn't respond and continued to sob.

Clyde looked around and saw Sheva's phone by the wall with a cracked screen but it was still on. He picked up her phone and clicked the play button on the video.

"I found out why she is upset…" Clyde said disappointed. He handed the phone to his wife and let her watch the video.

"Oh dear…" She said as she put the phone down. "My poor baby." Nadia said as she kissed Sheva's forehead and pulled her closer.

"I knew there was something about that boy…" Clyde said as he paced around angrily.

"Chris just wouldn't do that… Something had to have happened. Maybe he was set up." Nadia told Sheva, trying to comfort her.

"No he knew! He lied to me about what he was doing today. He said he was going to help his grandma around the house but he really went to Jill's party!" Sheva told them between sobs. "I'm not going to the dance. I can't sit there and watch them be together." Sheva added.

"Sheva if you don't go you're letting them win. And we don't do that in this family. You are strong and beautiful, ok? You don't need a boyfriend to tell you that." Clyde told her as he ruffled up her hair.

"Ok, I'll go. But can you guys be ready to take me home if I can't stay?" Sheva asked as she lifted her head up and wiped her tears away.

"Well I'm chaperoning the dance so I will be there to help you." Nadia told her as she kissed her forehead.

"Will you dance with me then?" Sheva asked her mother.

"Of course, Rudolph!" Nadia told her as she poked her now red nose. Sheva smiled and cuddled closer to her mother and said "Thank you…" To her and Clyde.


Chris made it home feeling happy with himself. He opened the front door and was greeted by his mom.

"Hey mom." He greeted her with a bigger smile. He began to walk to the kitchen but stopped when she didn't respond. He turned around and saw her looking at him with her arms crossed.

"What did I forget to put the toilet seat down or something?" Chris joked as he walked back towards her.

"Chris we need to talk, so come on to the living room." Clara told him as she walked to the couch with Chris right behind her.

"So what do we need to talk about mom?" Chris asked slightly worried.

"Where did you tell Sheva you were going to be today?"
